Powder Dispersion System


Sandia researchers have developed a method and apparatus for dispersing powder material with a size range down to about a micron at a rate of 170/mg per minute.


It can employ an air eductor, which can subject particles to high shear in order to break apart agglomerates. The dispersion system can be housed in a case with wheels to facilitate portability. The housing can also keep the unit and contents clean in a controlled environment while directing the particulate flow away from the ground.
